Reborn by Shay Goodman
rebornThere was no breath coming from my lungs, yet I didn’t feel suffocated. I couldn’t feel my heart beat within my chest, but I knew I wasn’t dead. I was thirsty. The thirst was so strong it burned in my throat, and I knew what I wanted. I wanted blood. I could smell the sweet, delicious scent of human blood all around me, but I knew, even in my wild state that I didn’t want to kill anyone. That would make me a monster. I had to get out of there before I couldn’t stop myself.
